The Nina Simone Database
1959 December 5: Chicago WBKV-TV Playboy's Penthouse
Sitting at the piano, Riley on one side, Al on the other, Nina half-smiled as Hefner introduced her as a star "who came out of nowhere last year." She was Playboy-ready, too, in her spaghetti-strap white gown. Her short dark hair framed her face, and a pair of unusual knoblike earrings dangles gently as she moved her head. She opened with an understated version of "The Other Woman," the rueful song about that other woman who has to "cry herself to sleep."
